Event Date/Time

Dec 20, 2013 to Jun 29, 2014
9:00 am

This event occurs weekly on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Some of the most evocative prints and watercolors by more than 30 important artists of the 20th century will be on display at the Detroit Institute of Arts in the exhibition Let Me Show You What I Saw: American Views on City and Country, 1912–1963. The exhibition looks at the way in which the artists infused their scenes with qualities that suggest the presence of feelings and forces. The views are by and large initially appealing, but almost all imply natural and sometimes supernatural phenomena meant to provoke the viewer. Museum hours are as follows:

  • Tuesday-Thursday: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
  • Saturday-Sunday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Cost Free/tri-county residents; others: $8/adults, $4/kids
